We leave the old town of Sarria and at the 1.8 km (photo 1) we cross the way. We continue along a beautiful path which leads uphill (photo 2) until the village of Vilei (photo 3). At this point we take a small tarmacadam road which brings us the 800 metres to Barbadelo.

During this section we pass the symbolic mark of 100 km to Santiago, the minimum distance required travelled by foot required in order to achieve the compostela. We continue along the same small tarmacadam road which leads us to Rente (5.2 km) and Mercado da Serra (6.0 km) which we meet just at the junction with the LU-5709 road and where there is a bar. At the junction we take a woodland path which, following the arrows brings us across the LU-633 road. Just after we cross the road we come to Leiman (8.2 km) (photo 4) where there is a bar. Following the same path brings us to Perruscullo (9.0 km) (photo 5)and further along to Cortiñas (9.9 km) (photo 6), Brea (11.4 km) (photo 7) and Morgade (12 km, with a bar and a hostel). We continue along the path (photo 8) and arrive to Ferreiros where there is a hostel.

We pass Mirallos (photo 10, 14.2 km), A Pena (photo 11, 14.9 km), Mercadoiro (which has a hostel), Moutras (photo 13, 18.8 km), A Parrocha (photo 14, 19.6km) and we arrive to Vilachá, from where we can see Portomarín, on the banks of the river Miño. We arrive to Portomarin over a bridge crossing the Miño river. At the end of the bridge (photo 15) we can take a right which will take us down to the centre of Portomarin. If we don’t want to stop at Portomarin we take a left without entering the town.
